The <em>Herald</em> reports that for the route from Glasgow to Edinburgh, three non-maglev options have been rejected by an team of experts, who recommended instead that this route should be part of a big north-south maglev route across England, which would cut travel time between the two cities to 15 minutes. The route could run in the west, through Manchester, or in the east, through Birmingham. Many regional associations in Scotland have come out in favor of maglev, calling on the British Government to endorse such projects in its May review of railway transportation policies. The intensity of the debate on Scotland also has to do with scheduled the elections for parliament there, on May 7.</p></div></body>
